Herman Caicedo is focused on putting his fighters into shape for their upcoming commitments. The young coach works with Dominican bantamweight Juan Carlos Payano, who is scheduled to challenge WBA champion Anselmo "Chemito" Moreno on September 26th at the Mesquite Arena in Mesquite, Texas.
"We work hard day by day with Payano, to hit Texas and defeat Moreno. I understand that this is the toughest fight for Juan Carlos and for that reason we train to put everything on the line the night of the fight," Caicedo said.
"I came to the United States in 2011 for a world title in professional boxing. I attended the Olympics in Beijing and now it’s the time to prove that I am one of the best bantamweights in the world”
"All of these years of sacrifice will be rewarded on September 26th when I beat Moreno and snatch the belt. I am totally focused on this fight, and I'll take the best of Moreno and I will prove that this is the Juan Carlos Payano time," said Payano from Miami.
"Being the underdog fighter is not new to me. When I came to New York to fight Jundy Maraon; the odds were not on my side. However, I defeats Maraon by KO and demonstrated that I deserved this fight against Chemito Moreno. I'll get to Texas to fight and win, and I assure you that I will return with the title in my luggage to Miami."
